Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.
Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.
Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her father’s death is more sinister than she ever could have imagined.
A Thousand Pieces of You explores a reality where we witness the countless other lives we might lead in an amazingly intricate multiverse, and ask whether, amid infinite possibilities, one love can endure.
Our beloved Marguerite is back to worlds she has been before and ones she has not been to before. While you’re reading these new dimensions, you cannot help but bite your nails. You know don’t what is going to happen and she is on a time clock. See, she is on the mission to search for Paul’s soul. Yes, you read right. So each of these worlds were amazing but it was so hard not to think something bad was about to happen. It always does when something as important as this task is. My sweet, nerdy and amazing Paul. Gosh, I hope - no, she better complete this on time because I will cry a river if she doesn’t.
There is so many crazy things this book contains but I cannot say because it will spoil the story. The wait for this book is so worth it. Claudia Gray did it again. A Thousand Skies About You is amazing as the first, filled with action-packed scenes and WTF moments. You will cry, you will freak out and you may even bit your nails out. The twists this book contains is shocking and simply f---ing amazing! Brilliant! Just brilliant.
Prepare for chaos!
